    Looking for Guide Co-Author

    Hi guys!

    Ca. 20 years ago I earned some good money writing a several page tactics guide for a cool new game that appeared way under the radar back then, called UFO: Enemy Unknown.

    With Firaxis' update coming out this Fall, I am planning to do the same thing, but the 2-weeks frame is a bit daunting. So if you'd like to share the burden of writing a quality guide, please pm me. The ability to produce screen shots or even videos is definitely a bonus.

    Well, the release date is out now (Oct 9th, Oct 12th for Europe). Despite the apparent lack of interest here, I am going to call it . Before anybody beats me to it.

    Yes, Acedude, I'd be happy to have you in on this.

    Neroradec - any guides to your credit apart from Dark Souls? What did you do for that one? Still interested in this one?

    You can only have one co-author, so if you go with Ac3, Nero's guide credentials are irrelevant. But needless to say, Nero's a great guide writer with quite a few guides to his name.

    Good to hear. I did join up with Acedude before, but I am absolutely open to a new team-up. Of course it's still a few months, but I have been waiting for a decent turn-based tactics games for what feels like ages now (don't like the Japanese style that much, I found out).

    And yes, learned about the 1 month, too, after posting (oops). Thought I remembered it was 3 months, I guess the excitement carried me away a bit (something that doesn't happen a lot anymore ;-)).

    Major releases can be called 3 months in advance; non-majors can be called 1 month in advance.

    Then I was right after all. I'd be surprised if XCOM wasn't considered a major release.

    You'd have to ask a TGT member to get a definitive answer.

    Hey, I'm kinda interested in the game too. I haven't played it, but I will definitely get it. I've written 7 other guys (in progress with my 8th), so I have experience. I do not make videos though. But I'm here too if you want, because I will get the game on launch anyway.

    As far as I know, this isn't a major at the moment. Also, it got delayed until April 2013 to March 2014 so you'll be waiting a while.

    Are you perchance thinking 2K Marin's XCOM FPS? That isn't what I am after - it's XCOM - Enemy Unknown by Firaxis, released in October this year. But yes, the wait is still way too long ;-).
